Les Six Composers

The Golden Age: The Les Six composers revel in the Roaring 20’s

Monday February 15 & Tuesday February 16, 2016
7pm at the new Transept in Over-the-Rhine.

Featuring: Aimée Langrée, Jean-Robert de Cavel, Heather Britt, Lindsey Augusta Mercer and Lizzy Duquette

As a sequel to last season’s romping Salon Cabaret we move forward in time to les Années folles, where the spirit of 1920’s was irreverent, rebellious and dynamic artistic expression. A group of avant-garde musicians known as Les Six, influenced by their godfather, Jean Cocteau, took up social criticism by way of satire, producing works like Les mariés de la tour Eiffel (The Wedding Party on the Eiffel Tower) a nonsensical satire on the bourgeoisie and a ballet to a libretto by Jean Cocteau
